Woop! Woop! Purse Palooza 2012!!5/21/2012 10:56:00 PM
Sara from Sew Sweetness has put together an UNBELIEVABLE event called Purse Palooza 2012. You must check it out... bag pattern reviews, tutorials, contests, prizes... HEAPS of prizes. This seriously looks like a lot of fun, and
it's KILLING me that I can't sew a precious stitch during it. I can't, you see, because my sewing machine is sold and my supplies are packed and ready for their trip to Canada. But you can... here is your ticket!
Here is what Sara has to say about her event:
I have put together a fun event to get you sewing a purse for the summer! Here's how it works:
1. Every weekday in June, I have 2 amazing guest bloggers scheduled to share with you a purse sewing pattern review. The review will contain detailed information about what they thought about the sewing pattern, modifications they made, what kind of interfacing they used, and more! Get inspired!
2. Even more exciting... THERE WILL BE A GIVEAWAY EVERY WEEKDAY IN JUNE! That's right, 20 GIVEAWAYS! Your Giveaway Fairy Godmother is Kim from My Go-Go Life - she has some unbelievable giveaways planned!
3. At the end of the event, you will get a chance to show me your purse in order to win some amazing prizes!
Sounds pretty good? Go check out all of those PRIZES.
I may not be able to sew, but I can still be a part of it in some way, and to be honest, I'm really feeling honored that I was even asked. My Emmaline Bag pattern is going to be reviewed on June 19th by Joanna from Shape Moth. Joanne is an unbelievably talented textile artist from Germany. She does some beautiful work, and I mean beautiful! Not only does she make gorgeous paper piecing, but please, please look at this purse with applique, embroidering, painting, etc. HERE. While I can't wait to see how she makes up the Emmaline Bag, I can't help but be a little nervous at her review. Shakin' in me boots, mate. I am also one of the prize sponsors, providing a 3 Pattern Pack of my PDF ePatterns for one of the winners.
I know where I'll be every day of June! (After I get back from holidays... and... maybe during holidays too, when I get free wifi at McDonalds, of course. If you are reading this, Jenny Craig, I will not be eating at McDonalds - just using their Wifi.)
I think I'd like to leave you with this beautiful... French... ooh la la, bouquet of flowers from The Graphics Fairy.
